Hands off our health insurance

Donald Trump & the US Congress

They're back.

There's a new Trump/Ryan health care proposal floating around Capitol Hill that would effectively gut the Affordable Care Act's (Obamacare's) pre-existing condition protections. Yes, the Republicans and Donald Trump are again trying to gut our health insurance protections.

You can read my explanation below, or go immediately to the "add your name" button on the right side of this page, and tell Donald Trump and your members of Congress to oppose the repeal of the ACA.

Under the new GOP proposal, you could be charged more for insurance if you have allergies, high cholesterol, eczema, or even simply because you're a woman. Yes, before Obamacare, many insurance companies would charge women more than men for the exact same policies.

And forget about if you have a serious illness like cancer. They can jack your rates so high -- by thousands of dollars a month -- that you'll never be able to afford insurance at all. Of course, you don't have to have cancer -- before the ACA, people were getting turned down for insurance simply because they had high cholesterol or eczema.

The Republicans are also planning on repealing the ACA's requirement that all health insurance policies cover a minimum of services, like hospitalization, prescription drugs, emergency services, and maternity (among others). Under the new Trump/Ryan proposal, individual states can opt-out of those benefits.

We stopped the Republicans from destroying our health insurance protections once, and we can stop them again. Raise your voice, get angry, and tell Congress to take their hands off your health insurance and leave the Affordable Care Act alone.

Tell Donald Trump and your members of Congress to oppose the repeal of the ACA.

Do not repeal or water down the Affordable Care Act in any way. You must defend the ACA's pre-existing conditions protections, it's requirement for a basic benefits package, and all of the rest of its benefits, including Medicaid. Oppose any and all legislation that would undermine the ACA.
